ULTimR V CHERT SHEET 



In order to solve Ultima V you must do the following: 

• Obtain all 3 shards from the underworld 

• Use the shards to destroy the Shadowlords 

• Retrieve the Scepter, Crown, Amulet, and Sandlewood Box 

• Become 8th level 

• Completed all of the shrines quests 

• Be 'Ordained' by Brittish when you sleep 

• Then enter the 'hole' to the center of the world, wind your way around (up and 
down levels, of course) and free Lord British 

1) Obtain all 3 shards: 

These are found in 'obvious' places in the underworld. I remembered to write down 
only two of the coordinates, sorry I can't tell you the Third. (CO, 50) and (B0,B8) are the 
only two I know. To obtain your coordinate hit <ctrl>-2 (on a //gs) or <ctrl>-<shift>-2 
(on a //e). This will spit out a long number. The last 4 digits are your current 
coordinates. Note: 0,0 is to your upper-left (as if you were in the 4th quadrant of a 
plane). 

2) Use the Shards: 

Go into each of the castles (Empath Abbey, Serpents Hold, and Lyceum) and find the 
flames of Truth/Courage/Love. You then must position yourself directly below it. Next 
summon the Shadowlord who is opposite that flame (Truth summons Falsehood, Love 
summons Hatred, and Courage summons Cowardice). To do this shout out their names 
(Falsehood: Faulinei, Hatred: Astaroth, Cowardice: Nosfentor). The shadowlord should 
appear directly above the flame, pass a turn so that it walks onto the flame, then use the 
correct shard. It will give you this little song and dance then say ...doom has been 
wrought! And the shadowlord is gone forever! 

3) Retrieve Lord Brittish's articles: 

The scepter is in Stonegate (94,4A) or is the reverse? well it is either (94,4A or 4A,94 
I'm looking off of my maps and forgot which way is which). Well, you go in there and 
grab it. NOTE: you MUST have the flying carpet by now to get over the traps or you 
will instantly die upon touching the traps (nice, huh?). The Crown is on the top level of 
Blackthorns castle (behind the magically locked door). THe Amulet is in the underworld 
(lower left part of the world approximately 70,D0 give or take a dozen) and finally the 
sandlewood box is on the top level of Lord Brittish's castle (again behind magically 
locked doors). To get it you must play the following tune on the harpsichord (678-987- 
8767653) and that will cause a section of the wall to disappear so you can grab the box. 

4) Level 8 

Well, this is quite obvious. You need at least 6,400 experience to do this. Takes quite 
some time. 



5) Quests 

You must go to each shrine, it will give you a quest to go to the codex (E9,E9) where 
it will tell you some pretty important info. The last time you go there (the eigth time) you 
will get some other info. This is the translation: 

Beyond shades egress in the centre of the underworld there is a place of darkness. 
Beyond this darkness lies the gate to the core of the world. When thou art ready thou 
must call forth Veramocor to unlock the gate and venture past ethereal words and stealers 
of souls. That which the world hath, dost awaits thy coming! 

6) Once you have completed steps 1-5 (not necessarily in that order) Lord British will 
come to you while you sleep and say something like: Thou art now armed and thy must 
now complete thy destiny! You are then off to #7! 

7) Enter the hole (80,80 in the underworld) and get down to 8th level. Somewhere on the 
8th level is a room which looks like a room in a town. You must go stand before the 
mirror. It will suck you in and your done! 

Here is some other important info:
